Changes in requirements occur throughout the software process from elicitation and analysis requirements through the operation of the software. Requirements traceability makes it possible to identify the origin and the dependence of the software requirements. Studies show that the tools and current requirements traceability methods are inadequate and hamper the practical use of traceability. In this paper, we carried out analysis of evaluation techniques and requirement traceability tools in order to verify if the techniques are being actually used and are being supported by software tools. As a result, we observed the lack of relationship between the techniques and tools evaluated and that some criteria, such as communication with stakeholders, difficulty, and requirement of stability were little considered in the evaluated tools.
